I have worked with a lot of staffing firms, as a matter of fact; I can probably be called an expert by now. For a long time I have had a very sour taste in my mouth about recruiters and staffing firms. In my experience, they always have tons of jobs, until you get there and do all of the testing and paperwork, and then for some strange reason after you've spent and hour or more jumping through their hoops you hear ""we don't have anything right now, but If something comes up, we'll call you"". Having a passion for recruiting myself, this behavior had become very frustrating... until AES found me. Now, AES has never placed me in a position, but it's not for lack of trying on their part. My first visit was very productive; my recruiter Melissa is an angel. She spent more than an hour talking to me and listening to what my needs were. She was very honest about what she could and could not. She never made promises she could?t keep, and never tried to send me on interviews for positions that she knew I wasn't interested in. Melissa is a ""Rock Star"". I also had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Isabella. She too was kind and honest; everyone that I encountered at AES was genuinely nice. Melissa told me that I should never limit my options just because I like her, but if I ever really need help; I know I can count on AES.
